A personal favorite side dish of my family. When someone needs slaw - they call me! I hope you will enjoy this variety - tart and sweet so it compliments many meat dishes and other vegetables - especially good with Pinto Beans! Keep refrigerated up to a week so you can have it as a leftover sidedish all week.

Options: This is a great recipe to become versatile with. I have added 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1/2 cup chopped pecans to. Delish with or without! I hope you will enjoy and hope to get feedback from you on this.
